The success of an effective intervention against a social evil is greatly determined by its trans-generational perpetuity. For the gains that have been made against corruption to succeed, the old must pass on the baton of good governance to the young.
The involvement of youth in the fight against corruption is likely to bring in new and fresh ideas that can replace older and out-of-date policies. It will also combine the high energy level from young people with the professional skills and experience from the older generation to create new levels of enthusiasm and productivity.
The Africa Youth Trust’s Youth Action Against Corruption seeks to promote the role youth in the fight against corruption through meaningful involvement in advocacy and championing for effective service delivery, reform of weak institutions, education and investigations.
